Every homemaker tries their best to provide a safe and healthy environment for their families. Mothers who stay at home and work all day to provide clean and healthy food for their families pay special attention to cleanliness. Every mother knows that there are germs on surfaces and they try their best to keep the places neat.

 


Covid 19 pandemic has taught us the importance of cleanliness. People started using surface cleaners, vegetables and fruits detergents, disinfectants and whatnot. Now that the virus has been controlled to a great extent, keeping those habits alive can provide us with better health. Here are some tricks that mothers can follow to improve their family's health at home.

1.     Deep Cleanse The House Once A While

Deep cleaning the house at least once a month can help you avoid infestations. Pests and rodents can enter the house from pipes and cause diseases. Therefore, you should clean every nook and corner at least once a month. This way you will be able to keep an eye on the attic and humid place where molds can grow. Molds can seriously affect your family's health.

 

You should also pay special attention to the carpeted floors. Dust and small insects might get trapped in carpets, posing health risks to your family. Carpet Cleaning can help you avoid these health risks.

2.     Use Disinfectants Correctly

Many people started using disinfectants during the Covid 19 outbreak. However, very few people know how to use a disinfectant correctly. Every surface cleaner operates differently. Some require a few seconds to work, while others may require a few minutes. You should know how to use the disinfectant properly.

 

You should never spray the disinfectant on a surface and wipe it quickly. The correct way would be to spray evenly on the surface and wait for a few seconds or minutes and then wipe gently. The waiting time is often written on the bottle label. If you are not using it correctly, the disinfectant will not be effective.

3.     Wash Everything Before Use

We are taught from an early age to wash our hands before we eat. Washing is the simplest and easiest way to remove any germs from the surface. You should keep your hands clean. Teach your kids to wash their hands after they are done with the bathroom, or playing outside.

 

You should also wash the fresh and store-bought vegetables and fruits before consuming them. If you want to be extra cautious, you should wash canned food items before opening the can.

4.     Keep Your Kitchen Clean

The kitchen is the main hub of the house. You should always pay extra attention to your kitchen's cleanliness. If your countertops are dirty, or you are not taking the garbage out daily then you might be inviting pests like cockroaches, rodents, and flies. These pests can spread serious diseases in your house.

 

Therefore, make sure your countertops are clean. You should take the garbage out every night. You should also avoid dirty dishes overnight.
